Not sure what they did after 1995, but from the mid 80s until at least 1995 
all the Audis had the "bomb". It's a separate circuit that is used for the 
power assist on the steering and braking. It's sole purpose is to keep 
hydraulic pressure up in case there is a loss of power so that power assist 
remains for the brakes and steering. I'm not sure if any other automotive 
criminal organization besides Audi uses one.
